Description
Alameda is located west of Oakland, in northern California. The island of Alameda was orginally a peninsula connected to Oakland. Much of the land was low-lying and marshy, but on the higher ground the peninsula was home to one of the largest coastal oak forests in the world. Alameda in spanish means "grove of poplar trees" or "tree-lined avenue."
